SB 10.64.11
kim nu te ’viditam natha
 sarva-bhutatma-saksinah
kalenavyahata-drso
 vaksye ’thapi tavaj├▒aya

Translation:
What could possibly be unknown to You, O master? With vision undisturbed by time, You witness the minds of all living beings. Nevertheless, on Your order I will speak.

Purport:
Since the Lord knows everything, there is no need to inform Him about anything. Still, to fulfill the Lord’s purpose King Nrga will speak.


SB 10.64.12
yavatyah sikata bhumer
 yavatyo divi tarakah
yavatyo varsa-dharas ca
 tavatir adadam sma gah

Translation:
I gave in charity as many cows as there are grains of sand on the earth, stars in the heavens, or drops in a rain shower.

Purport:
The idea here is that the King gave innumerable cows in charity.
